Just a random bumper thought.

Im going out of town purchase a cobra bumper for my 99-04 mustang, question is will it fit inside a 99-04 mustang if i go through the trunk and across the back seats folded down?

Re: Just a random bumper thought.

You may have to put the passenger seat all the way up but I think you could shoehorn it in there.

Re: Just a random bumper thought.

Yah you should be able to. I've seen a bunch of wrecked ones with the bumper sitting in the car that way, lol. You might have to work it in there but it'll fit, I don't think the cobra bumper is any bigger than the regular ones. I'd also bring some towels or blankets or something to cover the edges so they don't get scratched.

Yes. I've fit both a front and a rear bumper inside a Coupe using the drop down back seats and leaving both front seats upright. Not both at the same time, but they will fit.

I like both bumpers...just don't put the Mach 1 chin spoiler on either...the 03/04 has its own chin spoiler.

Re: Just a random bumper thought.

either require a new radiator cover part as the 99-04 gt has a honey comb grill that is removed and there is nothing behind it, it looks bad and you MUST put it on before the bumper or the bumper has to be removed to fix this lol.

You can see it on a parts picture at ford im sure (call tousleyfordparts.com they will know what it is) its the part the running pony bolts to on the 03/04 cobras and goes into the headlight alignment panel. its also needed for the mach 1 grill delete kit (the mach 1 kit comes with running horse, panel to hide the holes in the bumper, and the radiator cover i spoke up above)

Also you will need the 03/04 fog lights and the fog light bezels (tousleyfordparts.com probably has the best price here as well)

Then the wiring differs from normal v6/gt so get the new plugs from ford as well.

Re: Just a random bumper thought.

Yah that should be it as far as the grille area. Just make sure you get the 3 piece with the radiator cover piece...it completes the look. I bought the 2 piece at first and then bought the thrid because it looked bad without it.
